Connecticut Avenue NW Reversible Lane Safety and Operations StudyVirtual Public Meeting 

The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) will host two virtual public meetings to present an overview of the Connecticut Avenue NW Reversible Lane Safety and Operations Study including the technical analysis and preliminary concept designs. The virtual meetings will be held on Tuesday, March 30, 2021 and Thursday, April 1, 2021; the same information will be presented during both meetings.

The Connecticut Avenue NW Reversible Lane Safety and Operations Study assesses the multimodal (vehicular, transit, bicycle, and pedestrian) operational and safety impacts associated with removing or maintaining/improving the existing reversible lane system and improving multimodal accessibility (e.g., consideration of adding protected bicycle lanes). The project area is 2.7 miles long with the primary area from Connecticut Avenue at Legation Street NW to Calvert Street NW. The secondary project area is bordered by Wisconsin Avenue to the west, Broad Branch Road to the east, Dupont Circle to the south, and Western Avenue to the north.

Through the study, DDOT aims to:

  • Reduce crashes and conflict points while enhancing safety for all modes, and roadway users as well as pedestrians.
  • Incorporate additional mobility options along the corridor (e.g., protected bicycle lanes).
  • Assess feasibility of removing the reversible lane operation.
  • Determine feasibility of reducing capacity along Connecticut Avenue and the effect on adjacent roadways.
  • Advance Mayor Muriel Bowser’s Vision Zero goals.

During the meeting, DDOT will offer topic-specific learning rooms that will run consecutively and allow stakeholders to concentrate on a specific project topic area. The learning rooms will be moderated by members of the project team and will occur either before or after the general meeting.
